Gallery: “Occupy Dallas”
Hundreds of local protesters showed up Thursday morning for the Dallas version of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement in New York City. At 10 a.m., the crowd marched from uptown’s Pike Park to the Dallas Federal Reserve building on Pearl St. After the march, most of the group picketed in a barrier-contained area near the southeast corner of the Fed, while others spread throughout downtown and uptown.
It goes without saying that a general disdain for Wall Street and corporate America was present, but it wasn’t all economy-centered. Protest-goers also expressed opinions on foreign policy, government health insurance, gay rights, animal rights, and other political issues.
